Let Aziatix, Jaurim, and Idiotape give you a #PeepShow
Show company Converse has brought together AZIATIX, JAURIM, and IDIOTAPE for the free download track “#PeepShow“!
The music initiative brings together three diverse and unique Korean artists, featuring indie icons, JAURIM; rising hip-hop stars, AZIATIX; and award-winning electronic act, IDIOTAPE. The new track, “#PeepShow,” is available to music fans globally starting today via free download at play.converse.com.
“#PeepShow” is a cross-pollination of three distinct music genres, weaving together AZIATIX’ signature rap lyrics with JAURIM’s indie vocals and Idiotape’s electronic sound. Recorded in Seoul, Korea, the genre-bending track pushes the dial on youthful expression and brings an edgy new sound to the Asia Pacific market. Fueled by IDIOTAPE’s driving bassline, JAURIM and AZIATIX bring a new dimension to the song with their lyrical commentary on youth and pop culture.
“We’re excited to be a part of Three Artists. One Song and to bring a brand new concept to the Asia Pacific music scene.” said DGURU, front man of IDIOTAPE. “By not limiting ourselves to any specific instrument or genre, we were able to come up with a very original and unique sound.”
“Converse embraces a rebellious young audience and the notion of self-expression,” said Eddie Shin, lead vocalist from AZIATIX. “With “#PeepShow,” we wanted to elevate this young voice and inspire creativity among music fans in Korea and beyond.”
Three Artists. One Song invites artists to come together and express themselves through the creation of an original track. Recent song collaborations include “Warrior” by Mark Foster, Kimbra and A-trak along with “Doyathing” by world-famous Gorillaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000. Now in its 8th series, the unique music platform launches in Asia Pacific, widening the scope for the celebration of international music talent. Following the track release, a music video for “#PeepShow” will premiere at converse.com in June 2012.
